You are required to have insurance before you rent from Hertz in the United States. Although many of the major card issuers, like MasterCard or Discover, offer some coverage, there are usually restrictions.

We advise a full tank policy. You should receive your automobile with the needle at "F". If you return your rental with less than the amount that you received it with, most companies will charge a premium, and sometimes up to 3X the amount of current fuel prices to refill it. If you want to save some money, it is best to find a gas station before you bring your car back to Hertz.
